Lama Lobsang from www.lamalobsang.com explains that Tsa lung Trul khor, or Yantra Yoga, comes from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and is similar to both Hatha Yoga and Chi Gung. Ancient movements and postures, breathing exercises, mudras, and meditation techniques combine to circulate and rejuvenate the body's energy.
Yantra Yoga was originally taught in the 8th century AD by the Tibetan teacher Vairocana, a student of Guru Padmasambhava. It is based on the notion of trul-khor, or body mandala. Ancient movements and postures, breathing exercises, and mudras circulate and rejuvenate the body's energy. Tibetan meditation techniques, prostrations and mantras are taught for karma purification, elimination of negativity, and generating peace.
The practice of Yantra Yoga includes use of body, speech and mind: the positions and movements work the body, the breathing practices and chanting use the voice, and the visualizations and meditations engage the mind. The result is a holistic and meditative exercise.
